Description:

Gain an understanding of the role afterschool and summer programs play in building the school and community partnership. We will examine research and provide examples of successful implementation of such programs with a keen focus of the benefits and opportunities when integrated with housing communities and nonprofit CDC resident service programs. Though afterschool programs typically respond to community needs in various ways; the strategies and resources to be shared are practical so participants can immediately integrate them into their work.
